The performance improvement company is a finalist in two categories in the Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

San Francisco, Calif., August 30, 2017 — The Stevie® Awards for Great Employers has announced its 2017 finalists, and SweetRush is in the running in the two following categories:

  • Leadership or Skills Development Solution Provider of the Year


  • Achievement in Workforce Development and Learning, together with our client partner Bridgestone Americas


“Every year clients engage us with increasingly complex business and performance challenges. These awards reflect the results we’re able to achieve in collaboration with our client partners,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, Cofounder and Chairman of SweetRush Inc. “We’re thrilled to be named as finalists for these achievements.”

SweetRush will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze in both categories at the awards ceremony on September 22. In 2016, the company won Gold in the Leadership or Skills Development Solution Provider of the Year category.

The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the outstanding human resources professionals, teams, achievements, and HR-related products and suppliers that help create great places to work. More than 500 nominations from organizations around the world were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of HR-related categories.

“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received,” said Michael Gallagher, President and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The dedication of the Stevie Award finalists to making workplaces great for employees is evident in every finalist nomination.”
